It's official!

Piers Morgan has signed on to replace Larry King as the anchor of CNN's Live!

He's apparently been able to negotiate a deal with the network to stay with NBC and honor his three year commitment to America's Got Talent, so this fall, expect him to be doing both!

Amazing! We're definitely curious to see how he does!

Thoughts??

    anything's better than that Lizard with suspends



  2. 2

    Yuck!



  3. 3

    i just don't understand this guy as a choice? what is cnn thinking exactly? does he have a strong base? besides the teeny boppers who watch america's got talent? the news and politics interested ppl who watch larry king on a regular basis doesn't seem to equate to america's got talent audience. i just don't understand the pick.

    meanwhile, i am missing larry already..

    RIDONKULOUS

    Who in hell would watch that?



  6. 6

    CNN's ratings are shit, and I seriously doubt this guy will improve them; that's too bad because Anderson Cooper deserves a good lead in.



  7. 7

    And no one will ever care to watch the show again. And this guy's the choice to help with CNN's ratings issues…Bwahh ha ha haaa haa ha ha ha

    Who is this guy anyway?



  8. 8

    I can't believe they gave that stuck up arrogant a-hole the job… You can expect an executive at CNN to lose his/her job anytime this year.



  9. 9

    Nope, it will not last, mark my words. He is a virtual unknown to most of America, his accent is completely annoying and he has reached a dead end by taking Larry King's place.



  10. 10

    Piers is a real gentleman! I wish him luck!



  11. 11

    Before he takes over from Larry he should join the gym and lose some weight. We don't want to look at a pudgy plump-o when we tune in, after all.

    "Thoughts?".. ha…you´re kidding…
    Awful !!! What did they find in that guy? I mean,seriously …

    I don´t care about the accent (for those who"complain" about that shit)…but qualities as a person…
    And that is one crap of a man…No offence,sorry, just saying the truth.



  13. 13

    …..Okay then.



  14. 14

    I don't know who makes the major decisions but holy crap this guy????????
    I won't be watching fo sho.



  15. 15

    They should give this job to an AMERICAN. Not this British slob.



  16. 16

    "amazing?" Why not "amazeballs?"



  17. 17

    No way!



  18. 18

    CNN ARE TOTAL ASS SHATS. THEY JUST GUARANTEED AN EPIC FAIL!! NO ONE IS GONNA WATCH THIS SHIT NOW. LOL. RATINGS ARE TANKING LIKE SHIT AS IT IS… THE GENERAL PUYBLIC CAN MAKE BETTER DECISIONS THAN THESE IDIOT SUITS. FIRE THEM ALL!!!!!!!!!!!



  19. 19

    Very nice choice. I like him. I think he will do a very nice job. Hate to see Larry go but everybody has their own path to blaze.

    Good luck Piers. I'll be watching you! =)



  20. 20

    why does the US feel they need this british pompous ass to do an american show???



  21. 21

    he wears a rug too

    You really should update as the site you quoted from did. It's NOT a done deal yet. From original site:
    Piers Morgan has negotiated a deal to remain on NBC with America's Got Talent and still talk to CNN about taking over the network's flagging 9 p.m. hour after current chat host Larry King departs. [Wrap]

    UPDATE: This post has been modified from its original version



  23. 23

    I watched Larry to laugh at him. This guy is just an asswipe. Never watch again…

    Re: ladynTO – He's an erudite and intelligent man, so it should be interesting; but it remains to be seen whether he strikes a chord with Larry's regular viewers.



  25. 25

    No wonder there ratings are so low, damn they have some stupid executives, who wants to hear this fucking blowhard

    I just don't get it



  27. 27

    Re: themundane – Before Americans Got Talent he used to be the Editor of the largest newspaper in Britain and was a major icon in the world of News and Political Correspondence. This is what he's best at and (should be) known for rather than judging a talent show. Thats just a byproduct I guess.



  28. 28

    for all you losers who have never heard of Piers, he has been in the game a long time, he is one reason I subscribed to GQ….but all you white trash never heard of that magazine cause you live by this crap.



  29. 29

    Replacing one idiot with another…makes no sense. What Regis or Tom Bergerson or Springer weren't available? Thankfully, no Seacrest. They should have given it to an unknown.



  30. 30

    Cannot stand that guy…Will certainly not watch. What an a****



  31. 31

    OH Gawd… ! Do the producers ACTUALLY think that people will tune in to see this boring, pompous Fatty ? ! Really - the show will go down within 5 months - mark my words. He is too Tony Hayward - BOOOOOOOOOOOOOORING ! Always looks like he has just passed gas, which, being a Fatty, he probably has !



  32. 32

    And he has more chins than a CHINESE TELEPHONE BOOK !



  33. 33

    and he looks gay …..



  34. 34

    WHY OH WHY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!?????????????????? AMAZING??? REALLY PEREZ?
